Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network has announced today that her hit Sunday night interview series, Oprah’s Next Chapter, will now be called Oprah Prime, which will kick off in its new form this Sunday, when she sits for an intimate one-on-one conversation with Russell Brand, as the pair delves into the impact of drug addiction (Brand brands himself a recovering addict).

“When ‘Oprah’s Next Chapter’ launched two years ago, it gave Oprah the platform to explore the world in a fresh and meaningful way,” said Sheri Salata, president, OWN. “As the show has evolved into more topical conversations with newsmakers and celebrities, ‘Oprah Prime’ provides a wider lens for Oprah to intimately explore topics that matter and the public figures who are making a difference, as only she can.”

“Oprah Prime” will take an in-depth look at some of the most important issues facing us today, as well as headline-making current events through compelling interviews and thoughtful discussions with newsmakers, celebrities, luminaries, and real-life families. 

The series is produced by Harpo Studios. Executive produced by Andrea Wishom and Tara Montgomery. Viewers can join the conversation on Twitter using #OprahPrime.
